Are you tired of overblown, theoretical management treatises? Bored by self-important pundits preaching the latest in management salvation? Frustrated with practical, half-baked management solutions? Are you ready for a refreshingly practical and down-to-earth approach to management? Are you ready to be entertained, charmed and truly touched by a management book?
If you answered ‘Yes!’ to any or all of the questions, this is the book for you. Based on the idea that being a good manager requires many of the same skills associated with being a good parent, this book illustrates 19 valuable leadership lessons you can learn from such decidedly unbusiness-like subjects such as:
* HOMEWORK (Learning, studying and planning for the future)
* LITTLE LEAGUE (Always push yourself to do better)
* STREET HOCKEY (How to spot natural leaders on your staff)
* A SHOE BOX UNDER THE BED (The importance of personalizing otherwise sterile office space)
* THE ICE CREAM MAN (Trying different things to find out what you like)
* SAND CASTLES (Nothing stays the same…everything changes…that’s reality)
